Well, I hope it is because it seems to work. It feels like my body isn't fighting for every scrap now and actually lets go.
I decided that before I go out to meet everyone I will work with next week I should get some clothes that fit. My good pants seem to all be size 12 except for one pair of size 10. The 12s are too huge and so I got 2 new pairs today one size 8 one size 10, which just goes to show how all over the place women's sizes are; they both fit basically the same way. They sit just below the natural waist and don't bunch up with a belt. Phew. A few sweaters and one of my black jackets and I'm good. Got new bras, too, because I was swimming in my old ones. Cup size the same, but 2 inches smaller in the rib cage. Woo hoo!! I feel smashing, baby!
It felt so good not to be digging through the size 12 and 14s. I can't even remember a time when I searched for a 8 and 10s...and I have a feeling those will be big by summer. OMG. It's crazy, but I love it.
